NEC Announces Ultra-Light, Fairly Thin Type VS Notebook

Maximum PC Staff

While the netbook market is already mighty crowded, NEC has decided to enter the fray with their UltraLite Type VS.

The Type VS will pack a 1.86GHz Intel Atom Z540, 1GB of RAM, and a 64GB SSD. Along with this, it’ll have a 10.6-inch 1208x768 screen, three USB ports, Ethernet, an SD card reader and weigh roughly a pound and a half.

As for the price, it’ll run the average Japanese consumer ¥176,000 ($1,850). While it does pack some pretty solid hardware, that price is awfully hard to condone in the netbook market.
